The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has named Alan Amato of Times Fiber Communications as the first ever recipient of the organization’s Excellence in Standards Award.
The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to both the technical standards program and for pursuing the success of voluntary standards.
SCTE will officially recognize Amato at the Society’s annual awards luncheon at the 2005 Cable-Tec Expo, which kicks off June 14 in San Antonio.
Among his SCTE-related activities, Amato is involved in the Interface Practices Subcommittee, and serves as chair of Working Group 7’s Specialty Drafting Group. He is also chair of IPS Working Group 3, Connector and Cable, and chairs the IPS Connector Task Force and the IPS Cable Task Force.
